This latest Roundup features a selection of links to articles and guidelines related to the provision of proofreading/editing services for students. The area is something of a minefield, with some institutions encouraging it and some absolutely forbidding it.
The overall message is clear: before commencing editing or proofreading work on Master's dissertations or doctoral theses, ask the student for confirmation that they have permission from their academic supervisor to use your services and be clear about any particular restrictions on levels of intervention.
